AwardWallet is an online service that I use to track my airline and hotel loyalty program accounts. It can also monitor car rental services, credit card programs, and nearly anything else you can think of. I use it to track not just my own accounts but also my wife’s and other family members’ accounts.
Beginning in February 2017, AwardWallet will be tripling its price, from $5 every 6 months to $30 every 12 months (HT to Doctor of Credit). I still believe it’s a good value at $30. However, there’s no reason to pay more when you don’t have to. Signing up for AwardWallet at the current price will grandfather your account and avoid the increase when you renew in the future.
I just renewed my subscription to guarantee that low price. I recommend you do the same. If you haven’t tried AwardWallet yet, you can use my personal referral link or upgrade an existing account with the code TRAVELCODEX. Just make sure you decide quickly whether to pay for the service! If you have relied on free upgrades or trial accounts in the past, you MUST pay for a subscription before February 1 to keep the low rate.
AwardWallet is simply the easiest way to track your miles when they number in the millions across dozens of accounts. Even if you’re not at that point yet, you will be soon if you stay involved in this hobby and learn to maximize your miles. AwardWallet has saved me countless times with warnings when my miles were about to expire.
Just this week I had to redeem 120,000 Lufthansa miles (there’s no way to extend them without a credit card). In a couple of weeks there will be another 40,000 American AAdvantage miles and 60,000 United MileagePlus miles I need to address (not my accounts). An Excel spreadsheet simply isn’t up to the task for most people. If you were thinking of trying out AwardWallet, I recommend you sign up now to lock in the lowest price.
